Exclusive: Energy tech company raises $1.1 million, eyes overseas expansion

Houston-based Innowatts LLC is fresh off a $1.1 million raise, which closed in April, and now it's ready to expand abroad. The company uses smart meters planted inside homes by utility companies to track usage data. Based off that usage data, Innowatts then recommends a different, low-cost energy plan. "Seventy percent of energy consumers are subsidizing 30 percent of the high-use energy users," Siddhartha Sachdeva, CEO and founder of Innowatts, told the HBJ. "The way utilities go about managing?

What makes Houston so attractive (and ugly) for on-demand delivery

Houston's seen plenty of on-demand delivery services in the last year, starting with grocery-delivery company Instacart, to courier services, to alcohol on-demand. The concepts are pretty straight-forward. Users can order something, be it groceries, beer or documents, via their smartphone, tablet or Web browser. In a short amount of time, that service or product is delivered to you if you're within the company's delivery range. Costs might be slightly higher to compensate the driver, but these services?

Op-ed: New Post Oak bus lanes will bring down Uptown

It appears that the Uptown TIRZ (Tax Increment Reinvestment Zone), Metro and the city of Houston are all hell bent for leather to build the Guide Way, dedicated bus lanes up the middle of a 24-foot widened Post Oak Boulevard, supposedly to alleviate Galleria traffic congestion. I do not believe that this will solve any problem faced by Uptown office tenants or Post Oak retailers/restaurateurs. This project will lead to the decimation of the area as larger tenants vacate the Galleria as their leases?

Stephen Curry puts dark cloud over Houston’s dreams

Discarded Rockets trash was everywhere. Left-behind red No. 1 foam fingers. Dropped free T-shirts. The resiliency, fight and hope that had carried the team all season, through maddening injuries and from a 3-1 playoff hole just two weeks ago. Standing on top of the trash, MVP runner-up James Harden, the Western Conference finals and everything the Rockets had fought for all year: Stephen Curry. He?s No. 30. He?s just 27-years-old. He?s the best shooter the NBA has ever seen and the reason the Golden State Warriors have a 3-0 chokehold in the series and are just one win away from the league?s ultimate finals. Curry was marvelous in Game 1 [...]

Rockets’ situation epitomizes ‘win or go home’ cliché

The Rockets are down to the oldest, most desperate of clichés: Win one game or go home. But even a single victory, Rockets guard Jason Terry said in the wake of Houston?s Game 3 blowout loss, is a challenge for this team at this time. The Rockets face more elemental challenges, he said, if they hope to contend in Game 4 on Monday night. ?We?ve got to win one possession, one quarter, even,? Terry said. ?We can?t even worry about winning a whole ballgame at this point. ?They had another great first quarter. They got off to an outstanding start, 30 points in the first quarter. That?s two games in [...]

Harden’s heroics nowhere to be found in ugly Game 3 loss

This time, Harden wasn?t on his knees on the floor, his head wasn?t in his hands, he wasn?t crushed by thoughts of what might have been. Instead, he was on the bench, his warmups on, the towel thrown in. The Rockets guard, who was close to winning Game 2 in Oakland just days ago, was facing a new type of disappointment. Harden and the Rockets had their first off night of the Western Conference Finals on Saturday night. Instead of having a chance to be their hero, Harden was on the bench for the entire fourth quarter watching his team fall to the Warriors 115-80 and fall to 0-3 in [...]

Warriors put Rockets on brink of elimination after Game 3 blowout

Stephen Curry turned to the Toyota Center crowd in the corner of the court and stood there, forcing them to let it all sink in, as unable to retort as the Rockets. Curry had chased down the loose ball after a Dwight Howard blocked shot and quick-twitched his 3 from so far out he could have been playing HORSE. He held his position there to give the crowd a good, long look, then pounded his chest and punched the air like Muhammad Ali towering over a fallen and beaten Sonny Liston, his triumph over the Rockets every bit as certain. The Warriors had pounded the Rockets until there was little [...]

Rookie Lance McCullers on first major-league victory: ‘Just special’

DETROIT ? Baseball reporters sometimes need to wait few minutes outside clubhouse doors as players make their way in after a game, before interviews get underway. There was something wild going on Saturday behind those doors following a 3-2 Astros win over the Tigers at Comerica Park, because the hollers were super loud and the hoots even louder at a Club Astros special celebration. ?This is a traveling disco,? one person joked. It was all centered on righthander Lance McCullers, the 21-year-old rookie who took his first major league win after throwing 100 pitches for the first time in his pro career on Saturday, the last a strikeout looking with [...]

A little etiquette goes a long way at boat ramp

Texas boaters tormented by frustrations regularly faced at crowded (and not-so-crowded) boat launches got a bit of encouraging news this past week when Ford Motor Company announced a new option will be available on its 2016 F-150 trucks: Pro Trailer Backup Assist, a feature that ties together the truck's rear camera, sensors, electronic steering system and computer, allowing the vehicle to self-back a trailer. A driver in a truck equipped with the new system won't have to even touch the steering wheel to back a trailer- just engage the system, watch the camera screen on the dashboard and use an adjacent knob to guide the trailer. With Memorial Day Weekend marking the unofficial start of "boating season" across Texas, here are some suggestions offered to make things go much smoother at busy ramps: [...] it's common, especially early in the boating season when folks are taking their vessels out for the first time in months, to encounter boaters who back their trailered boat down a ramp, hit the key and find the battery dead or the engine won't start. Backing a trailer down a ramp, stopping, then spending 10 minutes loading the boat is a sure way to get dirty looks, a few harsh words and maybe worse. Before approaching the ramp to back down and launch, stop in the parking area or in the line of boats waiting to launch, transfer gear - fishing tackle, ice chests, etc. - to the boat, put the drain plug in, remove the tie-down straps, put the drain plug in, check life jackets and other safety gear, put the drain plug in and otherwise prep the boat so that it's ready to be launched. Back down the ramp, get the boat on the trailer, then move to the parking lot to unload gear, install the tie-down straps, pull the drain plug and otherwise prepare the boat for the trip home. If you know how to back your boat trailer and the person (spouse or friend) with you doesn't, back the rig to the water's edge where all the ot

Abortion fight returning to the Legislature on Sunday

AUSTIN - Texas Republicans are planning to force another vote Sunday on a controversial proposal to eliminate a provision allowing late-term abortions when the fetus has been found to have a severe abnormality that could make survival unlikely. An amendment filed Saturday by state Rep. Jonathan Stickland, R-Bedford, would force discussion on the proposal as part of a debate scheduled for Sunday on a bill to restructure the Texas Health and Human Services Commission. [...] he said he would consider pulling it down if the House takes up another anti-abortion measure, Senate Bill 575, to ban all insurance companies in Texas - even private insurers - from covering the procedure.

Chesney took the stage in his signature straw hat, sleeveless shirt and perma-tan. The acoustics at BBVA Compass Stadium, however, aren't ideal for a concert.
